Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 13, 10:53 AM

Lin-Manuel Miranda is an American actor, composer, rapper and writer, best known for creating and starring in the Broadway musicals Hamilton and In the Heights. He recently gave the graduation address at the University of Pennsylvania where he shared insights about personal storytelling. They are great!

 

I particularly like his focus on the stories you are NOT telling, and what this could mean. He talks about which stories to tell, whom to share them with, and the connection between your mission, vision, and values.

 

It's terrific stuff and a fab way to start out the week.
